Just like Dory in "Finding Nemo", I "just keep swimming, swimming, swimming..." In my case I just keep plugging along with my healthy eating and exercise habits. I don't always get in all the exercise I want, but I must admit, I am quite disciplined about what I eat now. Because of that, I can feel free to "relax the rules" now and than. Today was a perfect example...our church Anniversary Picnic. I skipped the hot dogs and hamburgers and only had chicken, but I did have a piece of cake.
There were some folks there today that I hadn't seen in a while. They were impressed to say the least. What was the funniest thing was that how I feel really means more to me than their compliments. I am the one who carries this body around...and the extra weight. I am the one who has so much more energy now that I'm carrying around 70 less pounds than I used to. I feel soooo much better!!! I really never thought I'd feel this good. I'm hooked!!
So...as of today, I have just under 7 pounds to go to reach my half way point. Getting closer. Just like Dory, I'm going to "just keep swimming, swimming, swimming..." I'll be there soon!!
